I review two fundamental contributions that Fred Hoyle made to the theory of galaxy formation. Hoyle was the first to propose that protogalaxies acquired their angular momentum via tidal torques from neighbouring perturbations during a period of gravitational instability. To my knowledge, he was also the first to suggest that the masses of galaxies could be explained by the requirement that primordial gas clouds cool radiatively on a suitable timescale. Tidal torques and cooling arguments play... Source: http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0303623v1

This article is from Mens Sana Monographs, volume 6.AbstractThis article gives a personal perception of the author, of what scientific research means. Citing examples from the lives of all time greats like Newton, Kelvin and Maxwell he stresses the agonies of thinking up new ideas, the urge for creativity and the pleasure one derives from the process when it is completed. He then narrates instances from his own life that proved inspirational towards his research career. In his early... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3190546

TALKING POINTS: EVOLUTION AND DARWINISM Evolution is true; Darwinian evolution is false: Evolution comes from the Latin word meaning “to unfold.” Evolution is the process by which organism change over time. This is an observable fact. BUT, it is often used for Darwinian evolution, meaning that all organisms descend from a single living ancestor by modification, based on the Darwinian Theory of Evolution (DTE). DTE is accepted by faith, since there is no scientific evidence for it, only, at... Topics: science, Christian, faith, religion
Paul Giem on The Argument from Design 12-28-2013We have seen several arguments to design, most recently from the Cambrian Explosion. Now we ask the question, "If we accept the evidence-based argument to design, then what?"Giem, Paul. “When Did Creation Occur?” In Understanding Creation: Answers to questions on Faith and Science, L.
